    Researcher rescued from Toronto lab after chemical exposure


    "A researcher who was overcome by chemical fumes is in serious condition Friday after being rescued from a downtown laboratory late last night.

    Police, firefighters and EMS crews raced to the lab, located at 700 Bay Street near several major hospitals including Toronto General and SickKids, around 10:40 p.m., where they found the male researcher on the 11th floor.

    Toronto police Duty Insp. Paul MacIntyre said the man was working alone, but managed to call 911 himself.

    "He was asking for medical help, he stated he had been poisoned," MacIntyre said."

    "Police say that the hazard has been contained, but the building is still shut down as the source of the chemical hazard — likely some sort of gas — is determined.

    No one else was exposed to the substance".
